Suicidal Tendencies Ex-Bassist Says He's Getting Punked ... Demands Dough For '80s Hit

12/9/2016 10:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1208_louiche-mayorga_suicidal-tendencies_facebookLouis Mayorga co-wrote and played bass on a classic punk tune while he was in the band Suicidal Tendencies ... and he's pissed the checks have stopped coming in for it.

Mayorga is suing Lisa Fancher -- founder of Frontier Records -- for not regularly paying him his royalties for ST's self-titled album featuring the hit song, "Institutionalized" ... according to the docs.

Mayorga says he has to hound Fancher for his cash until she finally sends him a check for an "arbitrary amount." He says these checks never come with an earnings statement, so he has no way to check if he's getting a legit cut.

According to the suit, Fancher sent him an email in June telling him sales are bad and he's not a top priority. Mayorga says he hasn't gotten a dime from her since.

He's suing her for any money he didn't receive.

1209-drug-bust-truck-robin-williams-tupac-01Robin Williams and Tupac smuggled a HUGE amount of pot through Arizona and got busted ... at least that's how this case reads at first glance. 

Law enforcement says Arizona State Troopers arrested 19-year-old Tupac Crum and 21-year-old Robin Williams near the city of Payson after finding them with 114 pounds of weed during a traffic stop. 

Cops suspected something fishy and brought out a drug-sniffing dog to check out their Chevy pickup ... and they say they found 5 big bundles of pot stashed in the bed. Cops say the drugs have a street value of about $69,000.

Fake-ass Pac and Robin face multiple drug charges.

12/9/2016 8:59 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1209-judge-reinhold-paradise-city-comicon-GETTY-02Judge Reinhold's going to miss out on more exposure and a payday -- he's cancelled his appearance at Paradise City Comic Con this weekend.

Paradise City organizers tell TMZ ... Judge was scheduled to be in Fort Lauderdale Thursday until Sunday to meet fans of his movies -- "Beverly Hills Cop," "Ruthless People," "Fast Times at Ridgemont High," etc. -- but they are no longer expecting him.

1209-judge-reinhold-comic-con-flyerWe're told the cancellation is due to his arrest at Dallas Love Field airport. Too bad for Judge ... he could have hauled in some decent cash -- $40 a pop for professional photo ops, plus more for autographs and selfies.

Organizers say he's welcome back next year.

Donald Trump Stake in 'Apprentice' Continues … But So What?

12/9/2016 8:04 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Donald Trump told Harvey Levin back in September, as one of the creators of "The Apprentice" ... he had a lifetime deal with the show whether he was on it or not.

We were told, then and now, any involvement he might have in the show ceases when he becomes President, other than the title "executive producer" and his paycheck.

Levin asked Trump, while shooting the TV special "OBJECTified: Donald Trump," if he was rooting for Arnold, and Trump made it clear he wants the show to succeed.

Sources connected to the show tell us, Trump had no involvement in the most recent installment with Arnold Schwarzenegger -- and sources connected with Trump tell us he'll have no involvement as long as he is President.

As one source put it, “This is a non story. Presidents don’t cancel preexisting business deals when they get elected. They simply disengage from the decision-making process. Jimmy Carter didn't sell his peanut farm."

Exclusive Details

1209-ronnie-magro-new-girlfriend-with-caption-INSTAGRAM-01"Keeping Up with the Kardashians" and "Jersey Shore" have found a way to unite, not on TV, but in real life.

TMZ has confirmed Khloe Kardashian's BFF, Malika Haqq, has been dating guido Ronnie Magro for a month now.  

He posted a pic Thursday of the two kissing on a hike in L.A. ... no word if a little GTL followed.

The two hit it off while shooting season 2 of "Famously Single." Production wrapped about 3 weeks ago and we're told they've been a thing since early November, so it's possible it'll play out on the show. 

Ronnie's other famous relationship was with his "Jersey Shore" co-star Sammi Sweetheart, but we're told he's telling friends he's into more booty these days.

T.J. Miller Arrested for Uber Fight Over Trump ... 'Tis the Season??

12/9/2016 6:55 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1209-tj-miller-tmz-03"Silicon Valley" star T.J. Miller got arrested in Hollywood for allegedly making his Uber driver see stars, and not the good rating kind either.

Law enforcement sources tell us T.J.'s driver picked him up from the GQ Men of the Year party early Friday morning, and during the ride they got into an argument about President-elect Donald Trump. The driver claims T.J. slapped him in the head when they got to his house.

We're told the driver got pissed and decided to make a citizen's arrest. He called cops who showed up and took T.J. into custody. We're told the driver did NOT have any visible injuries, and it's he said/he said at this point.

T.J. was released without having to post bail. Our sources say he seemed intoxicated.

1209-tj-miller-gq-party-GETTY-01Makes sense ... he was in a festive mood Thursday night. Besides the GQ party at Chateau Marmont, T.J. also went to the Vulture Awards bash at Sunset Tower.

Miller's movie, "Office Christmas Party," opens today. #GreatTiming

Will Smith New Movie Can Flop For All I Care ... It Helped Me Heal

12/9/2016 8:22 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Will Smith doesn't give a damn how his new movie does at the box office or how many awards it might grab ... because it helped him cope with his dad's death, and to him, that's all that matters. 

Smith did a Q&A on Facebook Live from the company's headquarters Thursday and opened up about how "Collateral Beauty" made dealing with his dad's death easier. In the movie, Smith plays a man whose daughter dies ... and Will says he learned his dad had cancer just as film prep started. 

Will says the film allowed him to open up to his dad as he battled with cancer ... and when he passed in November, it was easier for him to say goodbye. 

Check out the clip ... you can tell Will's words really come from the heart. 

Ne-Yo I'll Do Trump's Inauguration ... But I'm Bringing My Bird

12/9/2016 7:01 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Ne-Yo is the first black artist to say he's willing to perform at Donald Trump's inauguration, because as he puts it ... business is business and a party is a party.

We got the singer Thursday at LAX, and he told us without hesitation he'd be there in a heartbeat if Trump asked him. His reason seems practical, and he says he'd even bring a surprise for the new Prez. 

Just a couple months ago, Ne-Yo promised to head north if Trump won.

Interesting backup plan.

Kardashians & Blac Chyna Cease-fire Called in Family Name War ... For Now

12/9/2016 1:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1208-blac-chyna-kardashians-tmz-2Blac Chyna got railroaded by the Kardashians' attorneys -- not the K sisters themselves -- in her effort to trademark herself as a member of the fam ... and now Kris Jenner's doing damage control.

Sources close to BC tell TMZ ... KimKourtney, and Khloe reached out to her and assured her their lawyers were following standard ops when they filed docs to block Chyna's application to trademark "Angela Renee Kardashian" -- not singling her out.

The assurances were necessary after the language the lawyers used. We broke the story ... the docs said all 3 sisters would "suffer damage including irreparable injury to their reputation and goodwill" if Chyna got the green light to use the Kardashian name in entertainment.

We're told Kris personally told Chyna there's no beef ... it was a simple mix-up and she's calling off the legal eagles. For now, everyone's saying the right things to make Chyna feel better about the legal diss -- but, fact is, her trademark still hasn't been approved.

Until it is ... it's a lot of lip service.

1209-courtney-cox-jennifer-aniston-akmgsi-03Courteney Cox, Jennifer Aniston and Lisa Kudrow got the band back together and, for some reason, looked kinda sour at the end of the night.

The chick half of the "Friends" did dinner at Craig's in WeHo, and by the looks on their faces ... you'd swear they were discussing foreign policy or national security over the meal. Maybe they just weren't down for cameras -- Lisa couldn't wait to hop in her Porsche as she slipped out the back door.

Then again, every celeb knows photogs are part of the deal at Craig's.

Renee Zellweger Roped into BF's War with Ex ... My Money's MINE

12/9/2016 12:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1206-renee-zellweger-doyle-bramhall-tmz-01Renee Zellweger had serious issues with her boyfriend's ex-wife trying to pry into her personal life ... so she's desperately trying to get a judge to nip it in the bud.

Renee's boyfriend, rocker Doyle Bramhall, is battling his ex, Susannah Melvoin, over child support. According to docs ... Melvoin wanted Renee's income, living expenses and business deals ... admitted as evidence in the case.

It appears Melvoin wants to paint a picture of what she thinks is Doyle's lavish lifestyle with Renee, but Renee's not having it. She fired back in docs, saying her personal and professional life are separate from her bf's case -- and Melvoin's just trying to force a confrontation in court.

She got it. Renee testified, but mostly about a few gifts she'd bought for Doyle. She didn't seem too pissed outside court, and we're told there were no fireworks ... even though Susannah was there.
